Did Somebody Call for Rudolph?

Hi, everyone!

I've been working on card kit #3 for the Santa Saturday Holiday Card Project. And, while I don't have the eyes done yet, I think I'm far enough along to share this with the Jingle Belles While the Shepherds Watched Their Flocks Challenge.

The cards that the tweens/teens will make at Santa Saturday are going to be given to seniors in nursing homes as part of a church outreach program. So, I wanted to design cards that the kids would enjoy making and the seniors will like receiving. Who doesn't like Rudolph?

This card was inspired by a couple of similar cards I found on Pinterest. After figuring out the sizes and shapes that work, I decided to change up the backgrounds from the sample cards and go with a light blue, embossed background instead. In addition, I added a little bling for the nose.

This Santa Saturday sample card will be headed to SAS4Kids. So, I think I'll link this up for the current SAS4Kids Celebrations Cards 4 Kids Challenge.

Okay, back to the menopause room to work on those eyes. In the meantime, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!


  1. This is fabulous, I love the sparkly nose.

  2. ohhhhhhhhhhhhh sooooooo CUUUUTE!!! i love everything about this, but the fact that you're doing this as a KIT for kids to make and then give to seniors is totally blowing my mind, in the best possible way! you are such an awesome "GIVER" to the whole community, i am in awe of how much time you spend crafting for others! <3 <3 <3

    ps: probably also should've said, what a great addition to the JINGLE BELLES christmas critter gallery! :)

  3. What a fantastic card idea ... and what a sweet way to share the joy of the season ... so very glad you joined us at jingle belles.
